Third Clutch Owlets

March 27, 2011

Would you get closer together for a group shot. Carlos and Donna are leaving.

Not that close

Have you ever noticed that all kids are just a like.  Ask them to do something and they either don’t do it or they over do it. Photos of the third clutch taken today. Donna needed a picture to put in her wallet.

    ROFL Carlos, Yes, you have to be careful what you wish for and they ended up doing the owlet huddle, a very common owlet move to be sure. If you ever want to see some of my pics of Willow’s owlets, here is the link: Thanks for all the pics, they really bring back memories!! Hugz, couleedam

    I LOVE this!!!
    You can’t tell how many there really are!!!
    Have a wonderful trip.

  18. Donna Simonson Says:

    They are just too sweet for life! I agree with Donna. All of us MODS could use an updated photo. It looks like Molly and McGee have Mother Nature all under control and the magic feather is working overtime with those cute little faces in the owlbox. I will pray for safe journeys for you and Donna. Don’t forget to wave to all your MOD friends along the way and send photos of the new friends you meet as you go down the highways. We’ll all be looking for you and of course an update on Molly’s blog is always a welcomed treat! We MODS need treats just like the owletes. You have spoiled us so delightfully! Extra hugs coming your way!
    Love, hugs and prayers owlways,

    Photos cracked me up.

    So true….ask a youngster to do something and what do you get? Just like Carlos said…..not enough or too much.

    Have a safe trip and keep the photos coming.

  20. Joan from Colorado Says:

    Dear Carlos and Donna, how can you bear to leave your babies? what if you take them all with you.. you could mount the box on top of the RV.. No? then Is Austin going to take pictures for you to watch their progress? Have a safe trip..we will all be missing you.. Joan

  21. Carol Watt Says:

    Donna is just like all grandparents we have to have lots of pics and the latest one of our grandkids. Thank you Carols and Donna, now you go and have a wonderful vacation. Carlos please send us lots of pics as your MOD family enjoys hearing from you and wish you the best of health and joy. God bless and keep you.

  24. NatureLuver Says:

    Carlos, I’m sure Donna and you are going to miss M&M and these owlets! I think you need Austin to stop by and check on them while you guys are gone. Then Austin can post some updates for you. Good idea don’t you think?

  33. Mary F Says:

    I don’t quite know how to say thank-you that really gets the feelings into how I feel. You and Donna and Austin have made a huge difference in my life. Reminding me of the things that really mean something and to let the little things go away and not sweat the small stuff. Kind of a major reorganization of what is important. ENJOY your well earned vacation may it be more than you expect and everything you ever wanted, plus. My friends, we will miss you. Please post pictures and let us know how you are and let us enjoy your travels as well. Safe Journey. Mary & Gary

  34. R. Alan Says:

    Carlos, You always have such great talent for writing and are able to bring an immediate chuckle and a quick smile to my face. Thanks for the latest pictures of the kids and for all that you and Donna have given us. Have a delightful trip and safe travels. As always, you remain in our thoughts.

  35. GeniaKnitz Says:

    VacaDude got it right in his latest cartoon – “You Never Forget Your First Love.” And for MODs like me, M&M and owlets are the first love. They continue to hold the part of my heart that fell in love with them a year ago.

  36. sldausch Says:

    have a great trip and post pictures so we can live through you on your trip. God speed

    Absolutely adorable! Thanks so much! Happy trails!

  51. PegRod Says:

    March 27, 2010 on Molly’s Blog – Carlos was already thinking about Molly fans and the students and teachers who were observing the owls in classrooms. This blog was new at the time, but he provided some links “Fun Owl Projects for Your Classroom”, including information about owl pellets, a coloring page, and some recipes for the holidays.

    Now who would have ever thought they would be carrying photos of uncommon barn owls and owlets in their wallets? Molly Fans’ owls are part of an extended world family and have beloved names, even the new “Series of Four” Third Clutchlettes, thanks to the Royal Family.

  52. joan Herberg Says:

    nice early start—is it possible we will have 5 clutches by fall???

  53. joan Herberg Says:

    an early start–maybe 5 clutches by fall?????

  54. SueyPit Says:

    Hi! Checking out the blog wondering if Molly had a batch of owlets and whether there is a live webcam in the owlbox. I was quite obsessed last year watching these owlets! Now, the question is, I see Carlos is traveling. I need to catch up here and see what is happening…..seems to be a third batch …but is there a live webcam? Again, I realize I need to get up to speed here…..will try to figure it out! But fun to visit a site I so enjoyed before!
